Believe it or not, I've never used an Uncle Josh pork frog or rind in freshwater. That's mainly because I'm not a hardcore largemouth guy, but I fondly remember my first visit to the surf in Montauk, N.Y. Being naive about what works in those hallowed waters, I showed up with a tackle bag brimming with fancy wooden plugs, metals, and soft-plastic swimbaits. It's not that those baits don't work, but it turns out I was overthinking it. Every surfcaster at the Point that day was firing a plain white bucktail paired with a yellow or red Uncle Josh pork rind. Off I went to the local tackle shop to grab a jar, and for the rest of my visit, I smashed stripers on the simple combo. My good friend Jim Fee from On The Water is a bigger surf rat than I've ever been, and certainly understands the power of the rind. In fact, he just wrote a terrific (and very interesting) history of how these pork products came to be. But here's the unsettling part...they will be no more. That's right, save whatever skins you have left, because a 93-year run is over.
